    All of them? Lmao. You don't go into a GCSE knowing half the content if you want to leave with a good grade.
    There's 240 marks in the GCSE. That's more than enough for them to be able to ask questions on every topic.
    Looking back now, I can't think of a topic that wasn't asked about on the GCSE.

    If you need to prioritise you work, work obviously on the easier topics and work your way up to harder topics.

    There's no most common topics. The examiners won't ask the same topics over and over again. They always mix them up so that all the topics are covered. And as I said, over a whole exam series, all the topics will be covered.

    You need to work on the topics that you're least confident on, that's it.

    Well then why have i watched videos saying to know the most common and why does my maths teacher say that, and I don’t think shes going to like shes been a maths teacher for 27 years and head of maths so I think there is common topics
